Radio show done. I'll post the tracklist after I sleep. (And after I figure out what to say).

Really weird show tonight. Good tracks, mediocre-to-bad mixing. I think I'll rework the set and play it at the arcade next week.

I'm playing music on in 30 minutes. Movement Through Thought, every Friday 6:30 to 7:30 UTC.

Old IDM & other bits and pieces tonight. It's been a very IDM month; I keep getting pulled in that direction.

@salixlucida I'm sorry to say: I had forgotten! I went back and listened to that radio program after I linked it, and spent a few moments unhappy with myself after she mentioned she lives in Portland.

Night of the spambots on SDF Mastodon. :(

@salixlucida CBC Radio did a great interview with Greg Girard and one other person a year or so ago. Let me find it... here:

"Dark Tower of Dreams: Inside The Walled City of Kowloon"

Interview of Greg Girard and Suenn Ho by Paul Kennedy. It's worth the hour if you haven't heard it before.

One of these days I'll pick up a copy of Girard's book.

With all this talk about #Electro music in the press lately, I present to you my personal opinion on the history of the genre. The 2.5 hour mix starts in 1978 and works its way through the years, documenting an important track for (almost) every year up to 2016. Chronologically ordered and ready for your consumption. Enjoy!


@Luke I wouldn't be surprised if Contemporary Celtic Industrial Dance exists, too.

It sounds like something Richard D. James would do.

...now I wonder if that's the joke, and if I've just gotten it.

@radian That can be an issue, for sure.

If you're interested in digging into the style, this post on reddit's r/witchhouse is particularly useful:

One label stands out as particularly high-profile and active: Phantasma Disques

My favorite release I've found in the small amount of time I've spent looking is:

Those are my notes so far; I'm waiting until I have a bit of extra cash in my music budget to do more exploring.

Tracklist for Movement Through Thought on 2018-05-18:

and at :

Direct link to the mp3:

Electro and IDM this week. I needed to play that Lanark Artefax track that's been going around, and cobbled a set together to get there. Ends with me cheating by playing Puzl by Gescom in full. Good times.

Done with my radio show, back to watching RPG Limit Break / / twitch.tv/rpglimitbreak .

I'll post the tracklist tomorrow, after I sleep.

Movement Through Thought on starts in 30 minutes.

I'm coloring outside the lines tonight. I'm basically playing what I've been listening to over the last week. Will definitely feature that stillness that's been going around.

"A Not So Brief History of Electro, Part One" by Steve Mizek


Found on reddit's r/electro. Covers 1980s . Posting so I'll remember to look for part 2. '80s electro is well covered in the music press (I think). '90s and '00s receives much less attention, so hopefully part 2 will be good.

RPG Limit Break is two games into its "Silly Games" block. Gyre is speedrunning Virtual Hydlide right now and it's hilarious. Barkley Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden is up next...

@Cat Holy shit yes. This is fantastic. Haven't heard anything new, good, and in this style in forever.

@radian Yes. Yes, I think it's time.

I've been trying to figure out what labels and artists are currently active. Find the overall outline of the style.

It's tricky.

RPG Limit Break 2018 just started.

It's an annual RPG speedrunning marathon benefiting NAMI. It's my favorite of these speedrunning marathons. It's where most of my time will be going this week...
